The Last Week

This past week was the last week of the teaching phase of YWAM Belo Horizonte's King's Kids Discipleship Training School (DTS) (which I have been helping to staff), and it was my last week of officially working with this DTS.

The past 3 months have been a super busy and rewarding time for the students participating in the course.  They have heard teachings each week learning about various topics, and also had the opportunity to share the love of Jesus (during evenings and weekends) with street kids, prostitutes, prisoners, children, and church congregations. 

 My absolute favorite part of working with this DTS has been meeting and praying together with these two students on a weekly basis.  These beautiful and lovely ladies have such a heart to know God more and serve Him with ALL their lives.  I am excited to see where God will take them and how He will use them in the future!  It has been such a pleasure and an honor to get to be a part of their journey of knowing God more during this special DTS season.

This week we had two special events to conclude the first phase of the DTS.  On Wednesday we had a party to celebrate the great finish of the teaching phase!  The students threw this party to honor all the missionaries serving and helping to run the DTS.

It was a fun and special night!  We laughed, we ate A LOT, we enjoyed time together, and many words of encouragement and thank you's were spoken.

This was our favorite photo of the night. A fun shot of the "chubby bunny" game, except instead of saying "chubby bunny" the players had to say, "The joy of the Lord is my strength!"

The Refuge House ministry also hosted a YWAM Belo Horizonte base worship service.  This was a special "Commissioning Service" where we prayed for the DTS students as they begin the outreach phase of the school.

During the outreach phase of the DTS the students will staff a King's Kids Camp (which will take here on the ministry grounds), participate in various outreach/evangelistic activities connected to the World Cup Games, attend a King's Kids conference, and minister in a church in the city of Santos, Brazil.

Please pray for these awesome students as they continue to grow in God and shine His light in the nation of Brazil!
